The Travel Junkie
Founder and blogger Bowie Holiday began The Travel Junkie in 2010 with the idea of creating a two-way dialogue about the world of travel, design, fashion, music and its relationship to daily life.
The Travel Junkie attracts a global readership and remains borderless.
Originally from Yogyakarta on the island of Java in Indonesia, Bowie is now based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia – for real! The Sunshine Coast is where those in the know come for an authentic experience that transcends other destinations. It’s welcoming and unaffected. And, as one of Australia’s top 10 significant urban areas and Queensland’s third largest city.
Bowie has been featured as a blogger and travel expert by national Indonesian and international magazines, as well as other major media outlets. The Travel Junkie — writing the books of Bali is My Country, and The Journeys 2: Cerita dari Tanah Air Beta.
